ONE ROOM FLAT PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION BY
BOB LEE XINSHANG & LEE TIAH KHEE -photographers from LianheZaobao

Opening: WEDNESDAY 22,DEC
TIME: 11AM
venue: TAMPINES REGIONAL LIBRARY



〈一房一世〉
一台电视、床褥两张、饭锅炉灶电风扇等其他三件电器用品,这些是86岁老人谭林胜家中所有的家具,也是他与年迈室友现在仅有的全副家当。
你或许对这样的生活条件感到陌生,但它确实是许多一房式老人居住环境的缩影。
本地有近4000名像谭林胜一样孤苦无依的老人。他们当中,有近2200人是无法工作、也没有家人亲戚可投靠的老人,每月依靠政府分发的公共援助金度日。
有些像他一样未婚,也有不少已婚不过却已丧偶。虽然他们失去依靠的理由不尽相同,但是他们大多为了能继续过自主的生活,而选择住在这些一房式组屋。
分布在红山、大巴窑、马西岭、宏茂桥、后港等多个组屋区里的一房式租赁组屋单位,成了他们度过晚年的憩息地。
在这些每月租金介于26元至36元的组屋单位里,他们筑起了自己的生活空间。房子虽然简陋,但最起码,老人家保有属于自己的空间。
《联合早报》摄影记者李欣赏在一次采访任务中,走入了这个隐藏在后港组屋区内的角落,认识了这些住在一房式组屋的老人,也开始产生了用镜头捕捉他们生活面貌的念头。
曾经住过一房式组屋的《联合早报》摄影组主任李天锜也对这样的居住环境有特别记忆,两人于是合作,尝试通过手上的摄像机,把一房式组屋区内这些人们或许早有听闻,但却不常见的生活画面,呈献在大家眼前……


ONE ROOM FLAT
An intimate look at the lives of one-room flat dwellers in Singapore

A lone TV set, two mattresses, a rice-cooker, stove and an electric fan.
This is all 86-year-old Ham Lem Seng has in the one-room flat he calls home.
That's also the sum total of what he and his elderly flatmate poses.
You may find that kind of life a touch remote. But it is a life replicated in many one-room flats islandwide.
There are about 4,000 lonely and often elderly people like Mr in Singapore. Like him, some did not marry. Others have lost their spouses.
They may be alone for an array of reasons but for most of them, the end-point is the same: they spend their twilight years in one-room rental flats.
These self-contained units, which cost $26 to $36 a month to rent, are their world.
Among them, almost 2,200 are old people who are unable to work and have no family support. They get by on monthly Public Assistance payments from the Government.
Lianhe Zaobao photographer Bob Lee and Chief photographer Lee Tiah Khee ventured into the homes of some of these elderly in Hougang , to bring you these images.
They were moved by what they see, and they hope you would feel the same way, too...
